Our Future is vast...

Man kind has grown mighty and just on the shoulders of it’s ancestors sins. Yet among the hoards of the enlightened, there are still those few men who succumb to the temptations of our past. While the application of Zefram Cochrane’s brilliance has been put to use, pushing our species virtues ever more into the greatness of space; these few have hidden in the wake of expansion, escaping their guilt, misconduct and reputations not only across borders but across planets.

Welcome aboard the SS Mary Rose, a pastiche of a ship hailing from an era bygone, past checkered and history dubious. In all rights, she should have been moored in a museum, stripped of her warp core, drained of her chattels and propped onto a pole, a lifeless husk on display. Yet the SS Mary Rose has a tireless manner of slipping through the tight noose of fate, her history managing to have her plucked from her quietude and salvaged by a greedy merchant with an eye for earnings. Dragged from her stationary cradle adrift in the void, The SS Mary Rose is once more venturing the black. Now crewed by an itinerant band, whose motivations are questionable and approach is quite fly-by-night, the Mary Rose has been cast into the role of privateer vessel. Such craft find work only when wandering the outskirts of lawless space; their reputations, actions and mannerisms ensuring they remain unwelcome in the polite society of most UFP worlds.

This simulation is based on the dark side of Star Trek, people living on the very edges of the Federation. We focus on quality writing and not quantity like so many simulations out there allowing the story to grow in our own way, letting characters and our community develop. We are based in the Independent Fleet of Obsidian Fleet.

» Promotion - 2XO

Posted on Fri Aug 3rd, 2018 @ 7:43pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in Sim Announcement

Hi all

It isn’t often people get promotions as is the nature of the sim where the writing is more important than prestige but I am really happy to announce that we have a 2XO or Boatswain as we are calling him. Travis who plays Jasper Offermans has kindly agreed to step up IC and OCC to help in being the third side to our triad of command. Travis has been nothing but proactive in everything he does on Rosie from the moment he joined and we as a command team appreciate that.

It will be worked IC towards him getting a promotion asap on Rosie but he will be appearing on Cosmos asap as 2XO. Another note about this promotion is he doesn’t know the next mission as we are keeping him in the dark about it so as not to spoil the surprise for him either. **evil grin**


» New Player - K'Taal

Posted on Thu Jul 19th, 2018 @ 7:38pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Good evening Everyone

I would just like to introduce all of you to our new player Greg who will be playing K'Taal. They will be becoming our chief Communication Operator. I would like to ask while he settles in you offer lots of jp's and make him feel welcome on Rosie. I am sure they would appreciate a prod on discord to offer said Jps.


» Awards - Azzia

Posted on Sun Jul 8th, 2018 @ 3:00pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Hi All

A few awards coming out of our last mission from myself. So happy with how things have gone.

Captain's Personal Merit – Jasper Offerman

Travis only joined the sim a few months back and he has fast become a stable of the group. Suggesting Azzia for a mission and allowing us to play in his creation. I couldn’t thank him enough for allowing us to play in his sandbox, it was a pleasure. I hope that his activity and eagerness continue. – Becca

Plot Development Citation - Micheal Robertson and Deacon Kane

Bill and Steve get this award for the bounty hunter plot. This award is for people who throw the best "monkey wrenches" into the plot to make it interesting, but not totally off centre and that plot sums it up. It was such an enjoyable read - Becca

Non-Player Character Award – Tevir

A pleasure to write with. It doesn’t happen often that a character that you think will be around for three or four joint posts ends up being around for so much longer that you keep trying to find excuses to keep writing with the character – Becca

Obsidian Fleet Merit of Time Served - Micheal Robertson

Awarded to crewmembers who have served on the ship for one year.

Obsidian Fleet Service Citation - Lorenzo Di Julio, Lhaes Sommers (You’re a week early but meh) and Jasper Offermans

Awarded to a member of the crew who has served with the ship for at least 6 months.

Obsidian Fleet Gold Service Merit - Rueben Gregnol and Valiyi Uhin


That is all the awards I have for now. If anyone has any to nominate please go ahead and do so.


» New Player - Kenda

Posted on Thu Jun 28th, 2018 @ 4:07pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Good evening Everyone

I would just like to introduce all of you to our third new player of the month Sean who will be playing one of our 2246 crew members who is going to be waking up called Kenda. They will be becoming our chief Communication Officer. He will be joining us asap around MD -05 to allow him to be included in some of the fun but it is still being discussed. I would like to ask while he settles in you offer lots of jp's and make him feel welcome on Rosie. I am sure they would appreciate a prod on discord to offer said Jps.


» Update - July

Posted on Thu Jun 28th, 2018 @ 12:04pm by Captain Rueben Gregnol in General News

Hey Guys

This is just a bit of an update and reminder of the mission more than anything. With so many crew joining this month (can you believe 2 and one about to be approved) I thought I will do a little bit of a catch up.

Mission Sabotage
The SS Mary Rose is dead in the water with the warp core offline. No one can figure out why but things just aren’t right onboard her and haven’t been since Azzia. Suspicions and accusations are getting out of hand that there is a saboteur onboard when the ship starts moving again but the helm is locked out.

MD -14 - -1 This area is still open for posting.
Character Development. Suspicions brewing over mission prompt items.

MD 01 Area closed
- Warp Core goes offline
- Crew Meeting

MD 02 I will be starting the big post this weekend
- Ship Core comes back online as if my magic
- Crew locked out of helm
- Course projection worked out by helm

MD 03
- Truths revealed.
- Final destination revealed

Now a few of the reminders. If you are not registered on the Obsidian Fleet website, please do so as the site doesn't automatically register you at the moment like the old one.


If you are registered, you can now enter your characters on the site: http://obsidianfleet.net/my-characters/ . These are now needing to be tied to the online manifest. So please register if you've not already, and add your main PCs (not NPCs) on there. Once done let me know and I can work some background magic.

Just a reminder as I do every month I would like to remind people of the posting requirements of two posts each month. The month starts at 00:01 on the first day of the month GMT/BST (depending on whether we are on Greenwich Meantime or British Summer Time) and 23:59 GMT/BST. I would really like to get more posts in but as long as you have a post at least once every two weeks I’m happy. I will be catching up with the people who haven’t achieved this for a while this week and discussing options to help out as it isn’t fair on the people who are active especially as a few people have complained to me around this issue.

Any issues or thoughts just pm on discord.
